Erotic Expressions

The Honeymoon….Steamy Poetry

In case you missed the poem I wrote a few weeks ago for Deliza’s Dirty Dramas I’ve decided to share it here on my blog.

WARNING: This is an Erotic poem so if you find Erotica offensive please do not read this! 🙂

The Honeymoon

Her hips jerked in anticipation; he hadn’t even touched her yet
Blindfolded, handcuffed to the bed; she was already soaking wet
She felt a dip in the mattress; he was making his way over to her
She held her breath; impatiently awaiting his first touch, his first words
Silence surrounded her, the deafening sound of …nothing
Then she heard him remove his shirt, his belt and the rest of his clothing.
She felt his hands at her knees; spreading her legs apart
Her walls convulsed, tightening; awaiting his first thrust
He spread her legs further. She clenched her hands into fist.
He wrapped his hands around her thighs, sliding her body closer to his.
She heard him inhale, the sound almost made her come.
He exhaled then asked her, “Are you ready for my tongue?”
She didn’t know how to respond, hell yes, sure, okay!
But instead she lifted her hips, bringing her wetness closer to his face.
He chuckled; she smiled, His tongue swiped against her flesh,
When it came to giving head, this man…he was the best.
She grinded against his mouth, the stubble of his goatee tickling her
He closed his lips around her tiny bud, his mouth devouring her.
Her body shook as waves of pleasure came crashing over her
But he didn’t stop, he didn’t let up, he just kept feasting on her
With her thighs shaking, her back arched, she felt her orgasm approaching
She shuddered and bit her lip, her body felt like it was floating.
He delved his tongue between her folds, in and out…in and out.
She tossed her head side to side trying her best not to scream out
But she failed; she trembled and screamed his name as she came
He swallowed the evidence of her orgasm, her body felt drained
He released her legs and rubbed his hands over her stomach, up to her breast
She felt him removing the blindfold and handcuffs, his chest pressed against her chest
“I told you I could make you scream,” is what he whispered in her ear.
Yes he had and yes he did. But this night was far from over.
It was her turn to show him, that this was no rookie that he wed.
She pushed him down against the mattress, “Now watch me make you beg.”

Book Cover Monday/Author Interview with Janiera Eldridge


Welcome to Book Cover Monday. Today we have the very talented Janiera Eldridge here with us! (Every one clap real loud for Janiera.) I love her cover for Good Ghost Gone Bad. If like me, you love the horror genre, then this is the book for you.

Siren: Janiera when was your book released?

Janiera: Feb. 3, 2013

Siren: Yay, it’s already out, so I don’t have to wait to read it. Where can we find you on the web and what’s your next blog stop if any?

Janiera: You can find me at my author and reader blog – Books, Beauty and Bodascious Deals.

Siren: Janiera, How old where you when you realized that writing was what you wanted to do with your life?

Janiera: I was around 21 when I realized college really wasn’t for me but writing creative stories was!

Siren: Who has inspired you the most along your journey as a writer?

Janiera: My parents, they encouraged me that I can do anything and at times I feel like I actually can. lol

Siren: Ahhh, love that answer and just for the record – you can do anything you put your mind to. 🙂 How did you come up with the idea of your current book?

Janiera: I watch a lot of Investigation Discovery. It inspired me to write a story about seeking revenge against so many of the nasty murderers out there. I desired to write a scary revenge tale.

Siren: How did you come up with the title?

Janiera: I wanted it to be a campy title like some of the other ghost films. The title tells you it’s a scary book, but it also shows you some of the campiness that can be found in the book.

Siren: What advice would you give to others who are interested in/or currently working towards becoming a published author.

Janiera: Write the story you have in your heart and don’t sacrifice your story for anyone! If traditional publishers don’t publish it, don’t worry, self-publishing is an amazing new option! It’s rewarding and really helps you to grow as a person.

Siren: What books/authors have influenced your writing?

Janiera: Stephen King, Stephanie Meyers, Kathryn Stockett, pretty much anyone who wrote a book that I love has helped me to write my own amazing story.

Siren: Do you ever experience writer’s block?

Janiera: All the time! I get over it by watching a good movie or reading a good book to get the juices flowing. Sadly, it’s life that often gets in the way of my creative. Not the wonderful world of fantasy.

Siren: Do you write an outline before every book you write?

Janiera: Oh no, never! I write a story by the seat of my pants and let the story develop itself. I find my writing so much better this way and more juicy too.

Siren: Yay! I’ve had a lot of authors say that they don’t write an outline for their stories. Glad i’m not the only one. What is your favorite time of the day to write and your favorite place to write?

Janiera: I love writing in the afternoon or evening propped up in my bed. The later the better, the best ideas come when the world is quiet.

Siren: What’s your favorite food to eat while writing?

Janiera: I always have to have lemon water present if I’m not sipping on coffee while I’m writing. It’s strange but true.

Siren: Ohhh, I have to have coffee when I write, no matter what time of day or night it is. What do you do when you’re not writing?

Janiera: I’m usually reading If not that then hanging with my family. The simple things make me happy!

Siren: You sound like me. I enjoy time with my family also and I have a very big family. Janiera I have enjoyed this interview. I’ve already read your other book, Soul Sisters, which I loved; now I have to read Good Ghost Gone Bad. Thanks for stopping by Janiera. 🙂

For you readers out there here is a synopsis of Good Ghost Gone Bad. Be sure to read the excerpt below also – it really hooked me. I can’t wait to read this book and I love the cover for it!

Synopsis: Brianna Moreno was an average 22-year-old women who loved shopping, hanging out with her friends and making more career plans….until the night she was brutally and unexpectedly murdered.

Now she finds herself trapped in the ghost world while residing on earth. The problem is, her killer can see all of his ghostly victims and enjoys taunting them as much as he does killing them.Brianna soon finds out that her killer has horrible new plans concerning her family.

Brianna meets up with a few of her killer’s past victims to hatch a plan so terrifying, the entire town will never be the same again.

Brianna is a good ghost gone bad; the good girl side is gone forever!

That’s when I saw my face on the TV. It was my high school picture from four years ago. My face was fuller since I had lost 25 pounds this year from spending some of my spare time on a recreational soccer team but overall, I looked the same. There was no way I could fool myself into thinking it wasn’t me on the television screen. Next to the picture were the stats that once belonged to my physical self. The conservative looking reporter with his perfectly brushed come-over and bright blue eyes said I was 5’9, 145 pounds, black curly hair, dark skin, hazel eyes. My body shuttered from crying with no tears. It was a pathetic scene (which I was glad no one could see) but I cried harder knowing there was really no relief from this terrible pain. In life, tears were a way of watching emotional pain flee from the body, but now they were stuffed deep down inside of me somewhere and bottled up with a cork. I couldn’t hear what was being said on the TV and really didn’t want to. My parents must have gone to the police and said I was missing. I disappeared just in time to make the 11 O’clock news; I’m sure my killer was at home enjoying this. Exploding in anger, I punched the outside wall that faced the street. The couple sitting side by side on the couch shivered and moved apart. They felt me! “Hello!” I screamed at the top of my lungs. They didn’t budge anymore, but for a moment they did feel me. There was no hole in the wall, but they must have heard when the punch landed. For a short time, I was a part of the normal world again.

Author Bio:Janiera enjoys feeding her book addiction when she not writing. Writing is theraputic to her during her struggles with Fibromyalgia. Being unable to work a normal 9-5 is what encouraged her to write full time. She is also a book blogger at Beauty and Books where she mixes being a book nerd with keeping things chic. When not reading or writing she is freelance writing in the entertainment industry.When trying to relax she likes a huge yard sale on a Saturday morning, rainy days to read by and nacho cheese is her kryptonite. Soul Sisters is her debut novel.

Author Interviews, Book Cover Monday!

Book Cover Monday/Author Interview – Fire Angel by Susanne Matthews

Good Morning all! Today I am pleased to have Author Susanne Matthews joining me on my blog today. Everyone clap real loud for Susanne. 🙂

Susanne: Thank you so much, Siren for inviting me here today.

Siren: You’re welcome. Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to join me. Let’s start off by you telling readers a little bit about yourself!

Susanne: I’m Canadian, born and bred in Cornwall, Ontario, which is just across the St. Lawrence River from New York State; there is an International bridge here and at times, it’s quite busy. I graduated from Carleton University in Ottawa and married my university sweetheart, John. We have three adult children, Greg, Jason, and Angela and five grandchildren which I adore – Hannah, Nico, Eleni, Georgia and Tonio.
I worked as an educator for more than thirty years, most of them as an English teacher, and when I retired, I decided to dedicate myself to writing, something I’d always wanted to do. I enjoy camping, gardening, reading, and watching mysteries on television. I love to travel and see new places and hope to be able to do more of that in the future.

Siren: What is the name of your new book and what genre is it?

Susanne: My new book is titled FIRE ANGEL, and it is a Romance/suspense.

Siren: When is your book scheduled to be released?

Susanne: April 29, 2013

Siren: Where can we find you on the web and your next blog stop if any?

Susanne: My website is
I have a Goodreads author page at
Both those sites access my blogs.
As far as blog stops, I’m scheduled to appear on
Tasha Taylor’s blog April 20
Crimson Romance’s blog April 29
Kristina Knight’s blog April 30
Muse Tracks on May 3
Just Romantic Suspense on May 23-24
You can find me by searching for the names on those given dates.

Siren: Where can your readers find your book?

Susanne: My book will be available at Crimson Romance,, and Barnes and Nobles.

Siren: I’m excited about your new book and can’t wait to read it! Tell us a little bit about the book!

Susanne: FIRE ANGEL is a Castle meets Criminal Minds kind of story. Jake McKenzie, recently returned from Afghanistan minus a leg, is a criminal profiler hired to get into the mind of a serial killer who uses fire as his weapon of choice. Jake realizes that he doesn’t understand fire well enough to do the job on his own, so he gets the police chief to send for Alexis Michaels, a fire and arson investigator with a reputation for solving complex arson cases. What he doesn’t realize is that Alexis is the girl he fell in love with at sixteen, the one who ran away, and he’s never forgotten her. Sparks fly between them, but both Alexis and Jake have trust issues to contend with, and they have to set them aside to work together to find the killer who has made it clear that Alexis is his next target.

Siren: How old were you when you realized that writing was what you wanted to do with your life?

Susanne: I wanted to be a writer when I was a teenager, and would pound out stories on the typewriter in the basement at home, but back then, parents had definite ideas about things, and my choices were limited to teacher, nurse, or secretary. Women have so many more opportunities today. The idea of writing was always on my mind, but the realities of life kept it on the backburner until now.

Siren: Who has inspired you the most along your journey as a writer?

Susanne: My husband without a doubt; he’s always encouraging and doesn’t complain when dinner is late or I’m so wrapped up in my writing that I forget the real world exists.

Siren: Lol, you have a good husband. My fiance complains that I spend more time with my fictional men than I do with him. Susanne how did you come up with the idea of your current book?

Susanne: The main inspiration for the crime in the book came from a series of unsolved arson cases in and around Cornwall. The villain is a composite of all the people I have met with the sense of entitlement that makes them believe that what they want is more important than what anyone else wants. My wounded warrior hero was my way of acknowledging that all those who serve in the armed forces lose a bit of themselves because of the sacrifice they make. My heroine was inspired by my daughter who has an uncanny knack of being able to bounce back from adversity and who never quits, no matter how stacked against her the deck may be.

Siren: Your daughter sounds like a wonderful woman. How did you come up with the title?

Susanne: Angels are seen as good and demons as bad. I had thought of Fire Demon at one point, but decided that I liked the contrast of good versus evil better and decided on Fire Angel. When I chose it, I had no idea how popular the title was. I’ll check that out next time.

Siren: I think that’s some advice all aspiring writers should listen to – always google your title to make sure no one else is currently using it. Though that does not prevent others from using it in the future. Susanne what other advice would you give to others who are interested in/or currently working towards becoming a published author.

Susanne: Don’t give up! Keep writing and finish what you start. The worst thing an aspiring writer can do is give up on themselves and their work. I almost did that with FIRE ANGEL. I had written the story specifically for a pitch, and when the editor wasn’t even interested in looking at it, I was devastated. I was ready to throw in the towel and I didn’t write for almost a week, but the writing bug had me and I went back to the computer to start something else. One of my friends in my writing group told me that Crimson Romance was taking Twitter pitches, and I pitched to Jennifer Lawler. The rest, as they say, is history.

Siren: What books/authors have influenced your writing?

Susanne: There isn’t just one author who inspires me, just as I don’t want to write only one kind of book. I’ve read all kinds of books—science fiction, historical, suspense, paranormal, fantasy, but the thing I’ve always look for in a book was its romantic element. I’d have to say that all romance authors inspire me, and my personal favorite is Nora Roberts, who writes in so many different sub-genres, and succeeds beautifully at all of them.

Siren: Do you ever experience writer’s block?

Susanne: Sometimes; when I do, I go and do housework, do some baking, or read for a while. Then, I’ll go back to my own work and re-read the last couple of chapters. That generally puts me back on track.

Siren: Where do you get your ideas for your blogs and manuscripts?

Susanne: Inspiration comes from almost anywhere. Sometimes it will be something that I’ve heard or seen either in real life or on television, something in the newspaper, or just a personal experience. Recently, I wrote a blog about a 3D movie that had me ducking in my seat. Blogging is new to me, so I haven’t run into the ‘I have nothing to say’ problem yet. As far as ideas for manuscripts, I sometimes get those from the places we visit on holidays and the places I’d like to go. I’ve used a small part of my own ancestry in a historical novel, and my writing friends have given me lots of plot ideas. I’m a romantic at heart, so happily ever after is the goal in everything I write – how I get there is up to the characters.

Siren: Do you write an outline before every book you write?

Susanne: All the years that I taught, I religiously preached the need for an outline only to realize that I’m a pantser. I tried writing an outline for the book I’m currently writing and within two chapters I was out in left field.

Siren: Tell me about your characters.

Susanne: My characters are as real to me as any of the people outside of my writing world. I create them on the page the first time they’re mentioned in the story and then they take on a life of their own. If there are children in the story, they will behave initially like my grandchildren do; if it’s a teenager that character might take on a composite persona of any of the thousands of teens I’ve taught over the years. I tend to imbue my female characters with traits I either admire or detest, many times using some characteristic of my daughter that I admire. The males tend to be caring but not overbearing, since I’m not big on controlling men; if there is one in my stories, he won’t be the hero. My characters control the flow of the plot, taking it where it needs to go, suffering and falling in love along the way.

Siren: Since this is a romance and fashion blog I have to ask you a fashion related question – High heels or flats, which one do you prefer when it comes to shoes?

Susanne: While high heels look great on some people, I’ve never mastered the art of walking in the without wobbling. Most of the time, I prefer trendy flats or wedged heels. I love strappy sandals as long as the heel is less than 2 inches high.

Siren: What’s your favorite writing attire?

Susanne: I do my best work in my housecoat early in the morning. In fact, that’s one of the best parts of being a writer; I can work in whatever comfortable clothes I like. During the day, I’ll don jeans and a sweatshirt. This summer, I’ll probably write in loose-fitting sundresses or shorts and comfy tops.

Thank you Susanne Matthews for joining me on my blog today. I’ve enjoyed this interview and I will definitely be purchasing Fire Angel when it is released on April 29, 2013.


By the way – I love this cover! 🙂
xoxo Siren


Steamy Poetry!


Today you can find me hanging out with Deliza over at her blog – Deliza’s Dirty Dramas. I’ve provided a very steamy poem for her blog, but let me warn you – this poem is not pg-13 :). Hope you like it!

Here’s a teaser:

***Her hips jerked in anticipation; he hadn’t even touched her yet
Blindfolded, handcuffed to the bed; she was already soaking wet
She felt a dip in the mattress; he was making his way over to her
She held her breath; impatiently awaiting his first touch, his first words.***

You have to visit Deliza’s Blog for the rest…. 🙂

xoxo Siren

Author Interviews

The Sultan’s Bride By Ariadne Wayne


Hi everyone! I’m so excited to have Ariadne Wayne over at my blog today. Ariadne is the author of The Sultan’s Bride, which was released January 31, 2013. Everyone clap real loud for Ariadne.

Siren: Ariadne I’m sure all the readers want to know where they can find you on the web?

Ariadne: You can find me at\

Siren: Where can your readers find your books?

Ariadne:, Barnes and Noble, Kobo, Smashwords, All Romance, iTunes, Diesel.

Siren: How old where you when you realized that writing was what you wanted to do with your life?

Ariadne: I always enjoyed writing and when I was in high school I decided I wanted to be a journalist, specifically a sports journalist and not just for the hot guys. When I left school I did the odd piece of writing for a local magazine but started working in a computer shop and decided I wanted to work in IT. I still work in that field but last year realized that the stories I’d been making up in my head for the last 20 years were no good there and I should start recording them. I haven’t stopped since then!

Siren: I’m glad you haven’t stopped! 🙂 Who has inspired you the most along your journey as a writer?

Ariadne: I refer to Neil Gaiman at times on my blog as when I went back to writing I was so unsure of the rules around it as it had been so long. I saw a post on tumblr from him saying that there were no rules. It gave me the confidence to write on the topics I wanted to and as much as I wanted to.

Siren: How did you come up with the idea of your current book?

Ariadne: I am a real fan of historical novels and have read so many over the years and then discovered historical erotica and loved what I was reading. I’m not really sure where the idea came from specifically but it was definitely influenced by what I was reading at the time. There was some thought too about writing a strong female character, she goes through some tough stuff at the start but she comes out on top in the end.

Siren: How did you come up with the title?

Ariadne: The Sultan’s Bride went through a couple of name changes, it started in draft called Harem and then became The Sultan’s Wife. I checked if there were any books out there called that first because I didn’t want to complicate matters and then found when I went to publish there was another book by that name so I changed it slightly.

Siren: What made you decide to self-publish?

Ariadne: The geek in me was intrigued by the technical aspects of it. I have enjoyed learning about formatting documents as I have seeing my work published.

Siren: What advice would you give to others who are interested in/or currently working towards becoming a published author?

Ariadne: The world is at your fingertips as far as information goes, don’t rush anything and make sure you research everything you can. Just keep writing.

Siren: Good advice! Briefly describe the process of becoming a self-published author and the benefits of doing this on your own?

Ariadne: What I love is that I control everything from what the book looks like (although there are some sites that do their own thing and you have to learn how to work with it) through to pricing and seeing sales in almost real time. What I did was write my story and then looked around for what I then needed to do, there are so many resources online and most publishing sites have help files to help you get published.

Siren: Do you belong to any critique groups? Do you think it’s important for writers to belong to critique groups?

Ariadne: I think it’s a great idea though I haven’t gone looking for any yet.

Siren: What books/authors have influenced your writing?

Ariadne: I love Philippa Gregory and Anne Rice’s Beauty series.

Siren: Do you ever experience writer’s block?

Ariadne: It’s pretty hard to say, writing part time I only tend to write when I’m inspired to. I’d imagine if I did this full time and had deadlines with someone that maybe I would.

Siren: Do you write an outline before every book you write?

Ariadne: I did, but I did things back to front. I had an idea for a book and wrote a short story which turned into my draft and then I wrote the outline.
For the next book I wrote the outline first.

Siren: What is your favorite time of the day to write and your favorite place to write?

Ariadne: Normally I write in the evenings after the kids have gone to bed and in my recliner chair in front of the TV. I’m one of those people who can’t sit in silence and concentrate, I have to have noise.

Siren: I need complete silence when I write, lol. Since this is a romance and fashion blog I have to ask which you prefer –heels or flats when it comes to shoes?

Ariadne: That is an awesome question. I love heels but can’t wear them so I just tend to look at pictures!

Siren: I think I would die without my heels. Tell us about the other books you have written?

Ariadne: After The Sultan’s Bride I put out Hot For The Boss which is three novellas. I then collected them into one complete edition and it can be found everywhere that The Sultan’s Bride is found.

You have been a very busy woman. Thank you Ariadne Wayne for taking time to do this interview. I have already purchased The Sultan’s Bride and so far I am loving it!

Short Description of The Sultan’s Bride:

Stolen from her parents Catherine Stanton grows up in the eastern region of Ajara, a ward of the Sultan. When the Sultan claims her as his bride she indulges both his deepest desires and her own. Suddenly reunited with her parents she had to adjust while making a choice between the man she loves and the man she married. Which one will it be? Warning: This book contains explicit sex scenes.

Her Dom's Journal - Free Read

Her Dom’s Journal Part 5



Seconds later she felt his hand on her dress sliding it up her legs then her thighs. Michael spread her legs open and inhaled deeply. London wondered if he could see how wet she was through the sheer black fabric of her panties. Next she felt him tugging at her panties. London lifted her hips slightly and he proceeded to slide her panties down her legs.

Her hips jerked when she felt his warm breath at her center.
He spread her legs further apart. She wanted to look but he’d told her not to. It took every ounce of will power she had for her not to lift her head from the couch and stare down at him, on his knees, between her legs. The first swipe of his tongue against her sensitive flesh…


Her cell phone vibrated next to her, distracting her from the erotic thoughts floating through her mind. London reached over and picked the phone up and stared at the name appearing on the tiny screen. It was him, her Dom. She smiled as she pictured him with the phone to his ear, frowning because she wasn’t answering his calls.

She already knew what he wanted. He was going to tell her to put his journal away, but she wasn’t going to do that. There was no way she was going to miss the opportunity of a lifetime. There was no way she was going to let this chance slip between her fingertips.

With him away on his business trip and his journal in her possession, there was nothing he could do to stop her from reading his most private thoughts.

London didn’t think of it as an invasion of privacy, it was more like a chance to finally understand how the man she loved thought. Her learning these things would only make their relationship stronger.

Who was she kidding?

She was reading it because he was clumsy enough to forget it and she was nosy enough to look through it – consequences be damn.

London sat her phone down and finished reading through his journal. She flipped through the pages trying to find the ‘Good Stuff’. She wanted to know what he thought of her lately not what he thought of her when they first met. She flipped to a page that read, ‘She will never be a good submissive,’ and frowned.

She didn’t know if she wanted to read any further. Was that what he thought of her, that she would never be a good submissive?

Well, she wasn’t a good submissive. He’d known that the moment he met her. Though she tried her best, well not her best but she did try. She knew she would never be like the other subs he’d had in the past.

London laid her head back against her pillow and closed her eyes. She knew she should put his journal away and at least pretend she was a good sub by not reading it. But she couldn’t, the rebel in her wouldn’t let her put it away.

Her phone vibrated again, and again it was him. She didn’t want to answer but she had been avoiding his calls all day. She knew he was probably pissed with her. London picked up her phone and accepted the call.

“Hello,” she said trying to sound innocent. How did one feign innocence over the phone?

“Do you have it in your hands?”

She missed his deep voice. She knew exactly what he was talking about but decided to tease him.

“Yes,” she said seductively. “I have your whip in my hands. I’m running my hands up and down the length of it wishing it was you instead.”

Her Dom chuckled, a good sign, maybe he wasn’t as pissed as she thought he would be.

“I miss you, love,” he whispered and those four simple words made her feel like the biggest loser. Here she was reading his personal journal that he’d asked her numerous times not to touch. She was ignoring his phone calls and after all of that he still loved her.

“I miss you also,” she whispered as she mentally chastised herself. “Yes it’s in my hands,” she confessed to him.

He laughed, “I figured as much. Play me a song. I love listening to you play.”

SAY WHAT! He was asking her was her guitar in her hands. OHHHH!

“Um,” she searched her brain for a lie, any lie, “I can’t hear you,” she said. “You’re breaking up.” She didn’t even know where her blasted guitar was.

“But I can hear you,” her Dom said, his voice was laced with suspicion.

“Let me call you back, I think we have a bad connection.”

“London, what are you up to? What are…”

She hung up before he could finish his sentence.

He didn’t even know she had his journal. Well damn.

The next entry is available now:
XOXO, Siren

Self-Editing: Carving Into Your Masterpiece

Carving Into Your Masterpiece

by Layla Chase©

At holiday meals, have you ever noticed the fuss about who gets the honor of carving the turkey or goose? Expertise is involved and most usually profess not wanting to be in charge of the meal’s centerpiece. Don’t we all suspect the carver secretly enjoys the attention and resulting accolades? We as writers are the masters or mistresses of our creative masterpieces-our manuscripts. So, let’s all grab a sharp knife and dig in.

Let’s work on word editing and rearranging sentences to elicit the maximum effect.

Gerunds-cut to the real meat of the sentence when describing a character’s movements

EX: Running into the house, she dialed John’s number on her cell phone. (Ouch-shouldn’t she dial 911. My first impression was the character literally hitting the outside wall.)

EX: Opening the door, he flipped on the light and drew his gun. (Almost sounds like the character has 3 hands, which is okay if this is science fiction and he’s an alien.)

Cause & effect-Slice into the middle of the sentence to retrieve the event that initiates a reaction.

EX: The sound increased when James swung open the door to his house.(effect before cause)

EX: When James opened the front door, the sound of the lawnmower intensified.(cause then effect)

Power words-save those luscious words for the end where they give the most flavor

EX: The night was noisy, then Caleb felt the danger all around him. (telling and vague)

EX: The croaking frogs and whirring cicadas quieted, the hairs on his arms prickled, then Caleb sensed danger. (specific details and ends with power word)

EX: The mangled corpse was covered with blood from head to toe.(passive)

EX: Every square inch of the mangled corpse dripped with blood. (pumped verb, power word at end)

EX: Blood dripped from every square inch of the mangled corpse. (another power word)

Overuse of adverbs-think of them as a spice that should be sprinkled, not shaken. Use of words ending in -ly often indicates a weak verb needs to be boosted.

EX: Maddie walked smartly across the room.

EX: Maddie strode across the room.

Feedback from Friends!

In past posts I’ve told you all how shy I am about sharing my writings with my friends. Well I am slowly coming out of that shell. Last week I sent a copy of my story that received a request from a publisher via twitter to a friend for her to read it and give me her opinion on it.

I received her thoughts on the story this morning. This is what my friend/co-worker Alanna emailed me….

“Girl what can I say ???!!!??? I loved it… I couldn’t put it down!!! It all flowed really well… There is some misspelled words and a few others things.. But GIRL you can write!!! If you want me to read anything else send it my way.. ”


She went on to point out the misspelled words and run on sentences she found in the story. But overall, she enjoyed it. That makes me happy because my goal as a writer is to create stories that make my readers smile. I want my story to stay on their mind long after they put the book or their kindle down.

I love to read and my favorite books are the ones that have me up all night, tired as can be but unable to stop reading until I finish the whole book.

As far as the grammatical errors – things like misspelled words and run on sentences can definitely turn a reader off and make your wonderful story seem subpar. I’m thankful to my beta’s Shawn and Alanna for catching mistakes in my story that I missed. Time for me to correct those mistakes and get this story sent in to the publisher!


Since I am so excited about the feedback I received from a friend, I have decided to share a excerpt from that story with you guys….


“Tell me baby,” he said again into her ear. “Tell me you won’t leave me.”

He shoved deeper into her and at that moment, at that particular time, she was willing to tell him anything that he wanted to hear.

“I promise,” she gasped as he rocked her again. She felt him removing her blind fold as he shoved in and out of her. Eyes free she stared up at him. He continued to ride her and she continued to love it. They continued to gaze at one another, his expression one of wonderment. She felt like crying from the intense emotions he was sending through her. Preston put his hand around her throat gripping her tightly but not in a painful way.

“I can’t lose you,” he said, “not again. I need you.” His eyes spoke volumes but did she dare believe it could be true?

Just when she thought he couldn’t go any deeper he did, her body shook uncontrollably as an orgasm like she’d never experienced ripped through her.

That excerpt is very tame compared to the rest of the story! 🙂

Have a great day,

Her Dom's Journal - Free Read

Her Dom’s Journal Part 4


“Being inside this woman is like being in my own personal erotic heaven. She’s so responsive, so wet and warm. My taste buds will never get enough of her flavor. I could feast on her wetness forever.”

London clutched her thighs together tightly. Damn it, she missed her Dom. She closed his journal and lay back against her pillows. She smiled as she replayed in her mind all the events that happened during their first weekend together. She could remember it like it was yesterday…

The moon had already risen to its position in the sky by the time they arrived at his condo. The trip there had been a silent one. She was normally outspoken but around him she was quiet and shy.

Everything about him exuded confidence… Dominance. Even the swag in his walk made her long to strip him out of those expensive suits he wore and take advantage of him. But she was supposed to be the sub and that meant she had to behave demurely.

London did not have a demure bone in her body. How was she ever going to play the role of a submissive successfully? Even though Michael looked good enough to eat, she still wouldn’t let herself become his sub… well not permanently. She was only agreeing to a weekend with him because the rules at The Fetish Garden required her to do so – all because she’d chosen the wrong mask her first night at the members only Sex Club.

In her defense, she was only trying to make a fashion statement. She liked to look good and be fashionably late to all events. But being late to an invitation only party and choosing a mask that complimented her dress rather than her intentions had gotten her in more trouble than it was worth.

London followed closely behind him as they approached his condo. The beauty of his beach home took her breath away. He unlocked the front door and she stepped into every girl’s fairy tale dream house encased in glass. There were windows everywhere, most offering a gorgeous view of the ocean.

The floor was made of a light colored wood. The walls were white and so were most of the couches that decorated the living area. London did not wait for him to tell her to explore his home she did so of her own volition. She was a lover of all things beautiful and his home was the most beautiful thing she’d seen. London sat down on the white couch located in the center of the room.

The cushion felt soft against her skin. London pressed her back against the couch and leaned her head back to stare up at the ceiling. To her amazement she could see the stars. The ceiling in the living room was also made of glass. She sighed as she watched the heavens. The sound of his voice brought her back to reality.

“Don’t move,” he whispered from the other side of the room, his voice dark, deeper than before. London was in the process of sitting up when he uttered those words, heart picking up speed she sat back and continued to stare up at the night sky. She wanted to turn her head in his direction to see what he was doing but she was too nervous to do so.

“No matter what I do to you,” he said, his voice coming from directly in front of her. She had not heard him cross the room. “No matter how good it feels London, I want you to keep your back pressed against the couch and your eyes staring up at the stars. Do you understand?”

Too excited to speak, London nodded her head yes. He sounded serious. Part of her was scared, the other part of her was fascinated.

“I need to hear you say it London. Do you understand?”

“Yes,” she whispered. She was already growing wet and he hadn’t even touched her yet.

“That’s yes sir, London.”

What the hell? Yes sir? Oh right, she was the sub – he was the Dom. Sort of like me Tarzan you Jane.

“Yes sir,” London said with a little more attitude than she intended.

Michael chuckled. “Don’t worry my dear,” he whispered. London could feel him kneeling in front of her. “Soon you will understand the ways of a sub and you will love it.”

Seconds later she felt his hands on her dress sliding it up her legs then her thighs. Michael spread her legs open and inhaled deeply. London wondered if he could see how wet she was through the sheer black fabric of her panties. Next she felt him tugging at her panties. London lifted her hips slightly and he proceeded to slide her panties down her legs.

Her hips jerked when she felt his warm breath at her center.
